When turns are the goal.
You never thought you'd see the day when you could enjoy both freeride and touring performance in one boot, but with the Dynafit Women's Beast Ski Boot, that day has arrived. Built for long days in the backcountry when turns are the ultimate goal, this boot is both lightweight and stiff, letting you save energy on the climb and giving you the ability to power through turns on the downhill.
The Beast is engineered with Dynafit's Snowdynamic concept, which means it's built to ski deep powder with minimal loss of speed. The Precision Lock buckles sit close to the inside of the boot, reducing drag and preventing them from getting side swiped by a rock or stump. This setup also prevents the build-up of snow and stops it from entering to the rear of the cuff. A custom light liner can be heat molded for a seamless fit and enhanced performance. This precise fit adds to the warmth of the boot. An anatomic 102mm last gives your foot some wiggle room, which is nice for the climb, while the cuff provides a range of motion ideal for touring.

- Q & A
Great upgrade from the Mercury
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've only taken these boots out for a couple test runs, but so far I'm really impressed! I just upgraded from the Dynafit Mercury (RIP) and here are a couple of the differences, both good and bad:
wider last (102) and consistent BSL length with other brands 23.5 (the Mercury was a 268, and my toes could feel the difference of 10 mm). Overall, the boot was much more comfortable out of the box.
Stiffer tongue allows for a more "alpine boot feeling" while skiing.
The lack of removable tongue does make these boots stiffer when ascending, but honestly, I'd rather have the better descent.
Heavier than the Mercury
The power strap is terrible, I'll be replacing the power strap immediately.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I tried these on full of optimism...but when you flex forward the shin pinch is immediate. Saleswoman agreed she felt the same thing and tried to show me how to dampen the pinch with foam/padding. The tongue has to be vastly improved. The foot itself fit fabulously, would have been great.
P.S. Hey Backcountry-ers....how about listing the weight of these puppies? Seems kinda important for an AT boot!
Hi, Does it change the shape/fit of the women Dynafit Beast and men´s model? Is it any difference?
Will the Dynafit Beast boot work with Marker Kingpin bindings?
